Around the World in 80 Dances
September 30, 2016 at 6:30 pm–10:00 pm
An eclectic fusion of cultural dances from around the globe, martial arts, history, storytelling and mythology. The presentation will include colorful props, traditional costumes, theatrical replicas of bladed weaponry and mask work from Behind the Mask Studio, as well as the craftsmen of Venice. The show highlights dances from North and South America, the Middle and Far East, the Polynesian Islands, Europe and South Asia.
This is a one-of-a-kind production, performed by local New England talent highly involved in the community at all levels. The cast is all-inclusive of cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and occupations (from editor and state government employee to business owner and engineer).
Special for ArtWeek, there will be a pre-show reception and a fun, casual, interactive post-show session to share some behind-the-scenes stories and show-and-tell about costumes, props and musical selection. Questions from the audience in regards to the creative process of each piece of choreography are welcome and encouraged. Also, we are including time for pictures.
Small venue. Space is limited. Beer and wine cash bar available onsite. Due to loud music and fast-moving props, this event is not suitable for babies and toddlers – ages 5 and up encouraged to attend. Early bird discounted $15 tickets are offered until September 24. Week-of and door entry sales are $20.
